You list "One-Eyed Jacks" as under "Copyright". Brando's own production company, Pennebaker Productions, is listed as the copyright owner on prints of the film. Brando shot two endings for the film but couldn't decide between the 'happy' or the 'tragic' versions. Paramount finished the editing of the film and hired Hugo Friedman to score a music track. I believe that the only claim for renewal would be by Paramount as 'the employer' of Friedman. Wouldn't the Paramount copyright, even if renewed, protect the soundtrack album, but not the entire film? I haven't read that Brando sold his copyright to Paramount. But if he did, why is Pennebaker listed as copyright proprietor in the film's opening credits? An erroneous credit? Then, 'Too bad. Tough luck,' for Paramount? Sincerely,

Forum: feature_films Subject: Re: Need Information

Sorry about Puppet people, I rechecked and got a renewal. I had checked all alternate titles. But I must have typed in the original title wrong.

My Son The Vampire was first published in the US in 1958 and then reissued in 1959 and 1963. The only renewal on the film is for the 1963 reissue lodged in 1991. To secure the extended term of copyright they needed to file for renewal by 1986. So that renewal is invalid but was filed by USCO because of the distributers ommission of the original publication date. So, the movie is safe to upload.

This was a conversation YOU had with V-C. Watcha been smokin', buddy? I want some too:)

Thank you, Skybandit, for putting Video Cellar's list here, and thanks to Video Cellar for all of his hard work! This should assist a lot of people like myself who get confused! :)

I was also wondering if these were PD:

Attack of the Beast Creatures (1985)
Attack of the Monsters (I think it's aka Gamera vs. Guiron) (1969)
Destroy All Planets (1968)

Thank you for any info you can offer on these.

I'm confused about one thing, in another post where I was asking about PD movies, he said that the German film The Head (1959) had its copyright restored by GATT/URAA, but it's on this list as "PD", and also under the "copyright" section. (That's a good movie and makes for a great double feature when paired with The Brain That Wouldn't Die.)

In response to the other conversation, I have heard that My Son The Vampire (aka Old Mother Riley Meets The Vampire and Vampire Over London) was found to be under copyright. Not sure if its copyright was restored or not, because I know very little about this. All I know is that Arthur Lucan was very cool. "...I'm Irish and there isn't enough of this stuff in the world to make me dizzy...nevermind tipsy." Hahahah that's classic! I bought it on DVD not long ago because my VHS copy was recorded off of TV and I had nearly worn it out.

On a side note, I think Bela Lugosi is the greatest actor of all time...They just don't seem to put their all into the roles like he did...even in the cheesy ones he gave top notch performances. The man was an acting genius! :)

My only wish is that the producers of the time would have had the insight to put Bela Lugosi and Vincent Price in a movie together. Now that would be a gem that would have stood the test of time and extended beyond. Sadly, it's something we can never have. :(

Also, I think Boris Karloff, Vincent Price, and Bela Lugosi would have all been excellent in the role of Scrooge. Sad that the producers of yesterday didn't think of that either. These ideas would have created three distinct A Christmas Carol adaptations. Another fantasy that can never be. :(

I have rambled enough. Forgive my incessant babble. lol

Take care, guys!

The Wade Williams of copyright claiming is Wade Williams (1) on IMDB. He is was kid during the atomic era (born 1942), part of the monster kid generation, growing up on the horror and sci-fi movies of the time. He is the one who had enough money to try and buy his childhood.

He tries to enforce copyright on public domain films, he has renewed copyright based on the shakiest of legal grounding, he also does own a few films outright, and has prevented those from being properly restored if he doesn't already own the best elements.

Many have called him a hack film-maker who attaches himself to other people's films to attempt to share in their prestige. He commits the ultimate moral crime that a public domain film distributor can - he puts his name in the credits.

WOW! I just spent forever reading the thread from that link and only read part of it. But it does illustrate the reason why I would avoid uploading anything claimed by Williams, even if those claims were invalid. The last thing I would want is to go to the time and trouble of uploading a movie just to have it removed by IA shortly afterward (of course that probably wouldn't happen too quickly now with the Archive's current situation). The Archive likely wouldn't be able to afford to deal with any legal action because right now it doesn't even look like it could afford to have any real staff to speak of. I remember downloading quite a few Ed Wood films here sometime back, none of which are here now. But I do thank the brassy individuals who recently put PLAN 9 back up.

I've heard that said before. But I don't know that Williams is quite as bad as Rohauer was.

There are apparently a number of silent films Rohauer had the final extant copy of that he allowed to disintegrate in their cans because the studios would not give him copyright. But he take over US copyrights to many films and pursued people in the courts for violating the copyright in PD movies.

Wade Williams and Raymond Rohauer have behaved badly and definitely haven't been a friend of the public's rights, but their acts are insignificant compared to those of the studios and Congress. How many movies were lost forever when studios destroyed prints to recover silver in film stock or by improper storage? Congress added the right to a lengthy copyright renewal, and has since made renewal automatic. More recently, Congress created the DMCA to protect the movie industry's business model from what it sees as piracy and extinguishing the public's right to fair use. It's forcing smaller countries to create their own DMCA-style protections using trade agreements like CAFTA. Then there's the President, whose representatives are in secret negotiations with our large trading partners for new copyright protections in the ACTA treaty.

Raymond Rohauer was a film exhibitor and collector who died in 1987. He distributed Buster Keaton's movies for a while and collected lots of rare silent and early sound films. Sometimes he renewed the copyrights on these films through dubious means ("She" for example). He was well know for pursuing people through the courts for violating the copyright in movies like "Birth of a Nation" long after they had lapsed.

If you know who people like William K Everson (lost films hunter) and David Shepard (Blackhawk Films) are, Rohauer is the antithesis of them. They collected, preserved and made films widely available to the public. Rohauer seems to have been equal parts "look what I've got" and "look what you don't have". If he was in an early western movie, he'd be wearing a black hat.

Oops! Forgot to take the Head out of PD when I put it into copyright. I've corrected it. Thanks for the feedback!

No problem, Skybandit. These things happen. Thank you for correcting it. :)

Does anyone know if these are PD:

Attack of the Beast Creatures (1985)
Attack of the Monsters (I think it's aka Gamera vs. Guiron) (1969)
Destroy All Planets (1968)

Thank you!

Make sure any Gamera movies you upload are the Titan productions translations. Sandy Frank did his own translations of some Gamera films that are copyrighted. In fact, ANYTHING that says Sandy Frank is copyrighted.

BTW, does anyone know if the original "Yongary, Monster from the Deep" is still PD, or did it get GATTed? The only thing cheaper that Japanese rubber-suit monsters are Korean rubber-suit monsters:)

Is the silent film, "The Son of the Sheik", starring Rudolph Valentino in the Public Domain? I see that we have "The Sheik" posted to the archives, but wondered about it's sequel.

I happen to have a copy - if it's in the PD I'll be happy to upload it.

Forum: feature_films Subject: Re: Are these public domain? / Son of the Sheik

"Son of the Sheik" is claimed by the very same Raymond Rohauer (now, his heir) as discussed in some of the above posts.


Oddly enough, Rohauer's opponent in the above lawsuit is Paul Killiam, who at this time already knew something about beating Rohauer where Rohauer's rights weren't firm, because Killiam's side proved that "Birth of a Nation" was in the public domain while Rohauer was claiming to hold copyright. In the case of "Son of the Sheik," however, Rohauer proved to hold valid underlying rights. Judging by the fact that the underlying work had copyright renewed in 1952, it must have been originally copyrighted 1924 or 1925, and thus may remain in copyright until 2020.

By the way, Rohauer's claim on "Birth of a Nation" was not as sketchy as some of the above remarks might suggest. There was a timely copyright renewal on the film itself, and for awhile Killiam thought he also held rights to that film in its second term. You can read more about this dispute elsewhere on the above cited web site (use the site map to find the "Birth of a Nation" case).

Just because Rohauer did go through contractual means to acquire supposed rights to "Birth of a Nation" doesn't mean he wasn't a scoundrel. I've read in a somewhat recent book on "Birth of a Nation" that Rohauer is reputed to have forced the surviving producer (one of the Aitkin brothers) to sign over his rights without payment on threat that Rohauer would go to the author's widow (Thomas Dixon owned 25% of the movie) and have her demand an audit that Aitkin wasn't prepared for.

Chase Step by Step is listed as copyrighted on this list but I was not able to find records with USCO on a search I did before.

How did you confirm is under copyright?

Actually it's still uploaded here:

I noticed Legacy Of Blood is on your list. I just checked the end credits for it on
This is the copyright notice I saw:Copyright with a "C" in a circle MCMLXXI S.W.FilmsAll Rights Reserved. Wouldn't that be a valid copyright notice?
